Voila - you're the owner of a brand new home.

We call this closing on your new home...or as it's better known -Hip hip hooray... you're finally getting the keys!

As you can well imagine purchasing a new home is journey, from start to finish filled with adventures you may not have anticipated but today is the day. Today is your closing. So let's discuss the process that moves you across the finish line. curving road at Lago Los Serranos

New construction homes are built in phases and you may have elected to build from the ground up or you may have found your perfect home partially completed. Either way the loan process is simultaneously moving forward in pace with construction. 

You have selected your options and upgrades, poured through magazines seeking ideas for your perfectly decorated great room, your soothing master retreat and even included special murals to adorn the walls of children's bedrooms. In California, where outdoor living reigns supreme, many buyers have selected options for outdoor rooms as an intregal part of the California lifestyle.

Your Design Center experience maybe compared to discovering a shoe oasis, this place is like a toy story for adults. The myriad of options available from flooring to carpeting, fixtures to appliances, maybe overwhelming but working with a professional designer allows the opportunity to personalize your new home.

Your Homebuyer Orientation/Walk-Through was a great success. Excitement followed you as you viewed your completed home for the first time. The invaluable knowledge shared by the Customer Service Manager, who may soon become your best friend, will assist you in maintaining your new home for the upcoming years ahead.

The countdown has arrived and you are in the final stages of closing. Typically this is a three day process (although extenuating circumstances may shorten the timeline):  Lago Los Serranos townhome

Day One: Sign your loan documents

Day Two: The lender funds your loan 

Day Three: The title is recorded in your name

Voila you are the owner of a brand new home and you're finally getting the keys. A smiling sales consultant presents you with the keys and a fabulous homebuyer gift. It's time to party (okay with pizza bribes and lots of friends it can still be a moving day party.)

Let your story begin!

Dear Kristal,

In the case of a new home, there will still be quite a bit to do with regard to landscaping and personalizing the home.

It's that two or three day closing window that confuses so many. "We signed, when do I get the keys?" Lol. We always explain the process to our buyers, and have a handbook about the purchase and closing process, but still... :) It's an exciting time.

Debb Janes ~ I have worked with buyers who are confused with the three day process so I frequently explain the closing process. You’re right it’s a wonderful time!
